Dog Sled Saga is a Kickstarter for a dog sled race simulator all about dogs

April 29th - via: pcgamesn.com
Dogs are great. I love dogs. So it was while idly clicking on dog-related links over and over again that I discovered this Kickstarter for a dog sled racing game called Dog Sled Saga. It's not just a straight up racer, but a full on dog management simulator in which you must care for your team of dogs lest they become disillusioned or overworked and begin to slack. Creators Dan Fitzgerald and Lisa Bromiel take cues from Pokémon and XCOM when it comes to the caring for and bonding with individual dogs, as well as the "semi-random circumstances" of adventures like FTL and Spelunky when it comes to your mushing career. This intriguing concept has given me paws for thought. Hah! PAWS. (Read More)

Kickstart This: Dog Sled Saga

April 29th - via: indiestatik.com
Bashful I haven’t been regarding my inferiority complex regarding racing games. Whatever it is about screeching cars around tracks and various other surfaces that makes it work, I just can’t comprehend it. All of the engine tuning and booty bouncing that comes with it is also a bit of a turn-off for me. So I steer my interests elsewhere, and only on the very rare occasion will a racing game stick out from the crowd enough to warrant me making a complete arse of myself trying to play it. Importantly, these games often don’t contain cars, as is the case with Dog Sled Saga. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

April 28th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
Jagged Alliance: Flashback arrives in the Katchup this week. I’ve expected (and hoped for) a Jagged Alliance crowdfunding attempt for some time now. As soon as it became obvious that Kickstarter was a place where old franchises could revive themselves, every week that the mercenaries didn’t appear was slightly more unsettling than the last. Would I rather have a direct sequel without a crowdfunding campaign? Perhaps. (Read More)
